What is an Aroha elf?
...well, essentially the Aroha elf tradition is an alternative to the Elf on the Shelf idea but DOESN’T promote ‘naughty’ behaviour and crazy antics (which to be fair we have ENOUGH of around our house already) and places the emphasis on positive, character-building activities for kids. Not that I’m an elf on the shelf hater 😝 BUT I love the idea of teaching love, kindness and gratitude with a hope to raise the next generation of kids to move away from the entitlement attitude which is increasingly commonplace. Aroha elves come up with ideas to ‘do good’ and ‘show love and kindness’ to others throughout the festive season ...ideas like: bake cookies for your teachers, give toys to charity, buy a Christmas gift for a child in need, give homegrown veggies to the neighbours, make Christmas cards for family etc.
Ps. Another bonus is that you don’t HAVE to do something EVERYDAY because lord knows December is busy enough without attending to an elf each and every day 😉❤️🎄
You can choose a boy elf or girl elf (girl elves have added pig tails) and pop a note at checkout re the colour scheme you prefer. If no colour scheme is added to the notes section I will choose a colour for your elf. Options are as follows:
- ELF COLOUR SCHEME: Traditional (reds, greens, golds etc) Bright (aqua, pinks, purples etc) Earthy (greys, darker greens, muted tones etc)
- ELF SKIN COLOUR: Fair or Tan
- ELF HAIR COLOUR: Brown, Black, Fair, Orange, Red, Pink
Please note: If no notes are made I will make and send a 'surprise' elf that I choose (photos are examples of previous elves and are not necessarily still available exactly as shown, all of my fabrics are limited in small quantities)
For all 'Custom Order' options turnaround time is my standard 4-6 weeks (if you need yours sooner please enquire as I can often accommodate). If you order AFTER October 14th please be aware that your elf may not arrive before December 1st if you are wanting to create an 'elf tradition' - please email or message me to enquire as to whether your order will be ready by December 1st or Christmas Day.
Please note: As with all Lille Bee dolls and toys these dolls are intended for supervised gentle play by children over 3yrs of age - never leave babies and small children unattended with toys and while sleeping babies and young toddlers should not have toys or loose items in their cots
